Welcome to St Vincent’s

St Vincent's has been a leader in Australia's health and aged care landscape for more than 165 years. Since our founders, the Sisters of Charity, opened our first hospital in 1857, our services and people have been behind some of Australia's most important medical breakthroughs.

 The Sisters also gave us a mission: to provide care to the most disadvantaged members of our community. Their courage and compassion has been a hallmark of St Vincent’s since we began and is central to some of our proudest achievements.

St Vincent’s today is Australia’s largest not-for-profit provider of health and aged care services. With public and private hospitals, residential aged care, community and virtual care, and outreach programs for marginalised people we are a microcosm of our Australia’s health and aged care system and are uniquely positioned to lead and respond to our rapidly changing environment.
